Here is my best explanation:

'habit' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'copper most upset' is the subsidiary indication.
'copper' becomes 'cu' ('Cu' can be a synonym of 'copper').
'upset' is an anagram indicator.
'most' with letters rearranged gives 'stom'.
'cu'+'stom'='custom'

'makes' is the link.
